"There Will Come Soft Rains" is a futuristic science fiction short story by Ray Bradbury in his collectionThe Martian Chronicles.The story portrays a house in California that is fully automated and controlled by machines.
Who-- There are no real people in this story, only the machines that maintain the house.
What-- The short story takes the reader inside the final days of a fully robotic house in the future.
When-- "There Will Come Soft Rains" takes place in the future (the year 2026) in Bradbury's collection, and atomic war has destroyed mankind. All that remains are scattered collections of still-running robots and machines.
Where-- California. Atomic warfare has decimated human life, but some of the homes remain. The story takes place inside one of the homes.
Why-- As a story about a slowly dying automated house bereft of human life,"There Will Come Soft Rains" offers a critique on the role of technology in human life and human over-dependence on technology.
